Hi Sue

Am very excited to find some Van der Lindes here. I'm wondering if they may be relatives of mine. Bep looks very much like my dad (who was born in the same year). My great great grandfather moved to England from Holland around 1860, so I'm wondering who he left behind and what became of them. Maybe Simona Van der Linde can help. Do get in touch. Thank you so much.

RE: Gabriel Spetter
Hello Sue

He was born in Sofia Bulgaria. Some of the family lived right across the border in Romania in Galatz aka Galati. But they came to the area from northern Germany. I have pictures of a brother of my great grandma and he wrote it all in German. If I remember correctly Gavi's great great grandfather was Adolph/Avraham Spetter.

Hello, thanks for paying tribute to this lady, she was my husband's grandmother. We are curious where the photos came from? They are lovely and the photo of Maurice Zwaaf included my husband's father as a young boy.

RE: My daddy
Hi Sue, pleased to know how much U liked the 'Dancing in the Sky' token & it seemed to be appropriate for him & UR Mom. So sorry I was not able to get back online to wish UR Dad 'Joe" a Happy Birthday & also for Gr.Pa. 'David". [But did that today] I know how hard these days are for you to get thru, even if they are Birthdays, we are simply not with them, except in love & spirit.

Yes, it seems to be a busy time for all. Our daily lives go on & seem to limit our 'flowering' time.

Thanks for UR sweet message.

RE: Elsie V. Bray

Hi - I think this is the link to Marie Emmaline Gramberg Edge 1878-1959(Elsie Virginia Edge Bray's mother). The father's name was John Henry Edge 1874-1946. They are buried together at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia. I don't know anything at all about maintaining sites on Find a Grave, so a transfer probably would not be a good thing. I just locate people there to add to my Ancestry tree. Elsie Virginia and Leslie Bray had no children. My mother grew up in the Edge family as a sister to Elsie and others, but she was actually a foster child. She spent her whole life with the Edges, though, unlike most foster children who only stay temporarily. My mother was a "permanent" Edge, so Elsie (Virginia as she was known) was my Aunt, as were her two sisters and a foster brother. You are the terrific one here, as you have figured all of this out and are maintaining some of these sites. Thank you very much for that! I don't really know anything about the Brays except that Leslie "Les" was said to have had some musical talent and could play things on the piano right after hearing them, etc. I know his father had come from England and that's about all. If I can be of any more help (linking the Edges maybe?) please let me know. Thanks again!

Thinking about you today
I am so sorry about you losing Zach, I know that pain all too well. I'm sending you a hug.

Beyond The Rainbow
As much as I loved the life we had and all the times we played,
I was so very tired and knew my time on earth would fade.
I saw a wondrous image then of a place that's trouble-free
Where all of us can meet again to spend eternity.

I saw the most beautiful Rainbow, and on the other side
Were meadows rich and beautiful -- lush and green and wide!
And running through the meadows as far as the eye could see
Were animals of every sort as healthy as could be!
My own tired, failing body was fresh and healed and new
And I wanted to go run with them, but I had something left to do.

I needed to reach out to you, to tell you I'm alright
That this place is truly wonderful, then a bright Glow pierced the night.
'Twas the Glow of many Candles shining bright and strong and bold
And I knew then that it held your love in its brilliant shades of gold.

For although we may not be together in the way we used to be,
We are still connected by a cord no eye can see.
So whenever you need to find me, we're never far apart
If you look beyond the Rainbow and listen with your heart.
